Thaw the puff pastry.
Preheat the oven to 200°C (approximately 390°F).
Cut the leek lengthwise, rinse, trim and cut into thin rings. Sauté briefly in a pan with 2 tablespoons of butter, remove from the heat and cool.
Mix the eggs with the heavy cream, crème fraîche and grated cheese. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Place the puff pastry on a floured surface and roll out slightly larger than the baking pan. Line a buttered baking pan with the puff pastry. Press into the bottom and sides to create a crust. Arrange the leeks on the base, pour the egg mixture over the leeks, spread evenly and bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes.
Let the quiche cool slightly, cut into pieces and serve warm.
